This study is a pilot study of the safety, tolerability and efficacy of an investigational central venous catheter device used in conjunction with a standard central venous catheter. The hypothesis is that utilization of a catheter device incorporating cyanoacrylate will reduce catheter colonization by bacteria, and may decrease the rate of catheter-related bloodstream infections.

Condition Intervention
Intensive Care Device: silicone catheter boot

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Exploring the Use of a Novel Device for Reducing Catheter-Related Bloodstream Infections
